Maine OUI lawyers John Webb, Vincent LoConte, Nicole Williamson, and Conor Todd are ready to defend you in all Southern Maine courts.

In the United States every day almost 30 people die from a car accident that involves some form of drunk driving. That’s almost 30% of all traffic deaths in the country.

Not only this, but alcohol-related crashes cost more than $44 billion each year.

Luckily there are various ways today to prevent these deaths – one of which is through the use of a breathalyzer test. One type of OUI breath test is used by your arresting officer when you are first pulled over. Then there is the official breath test machine used by police after your arrest. Finally the car breathalyzer or ignition inteerlock is a device installed on your vehicle that you blow into to be able to start the engine.

I am proud to report that this past weekend I was a Demonstration Speaker and Group Instruction Team member at the Summer Session of the National College of DUI Defense, July 26th to the 28th, hosted by Dean George Stein and held at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The National College of DUI Defense (NCDD) is a professional, non-profit corporation dedicated to the improvement of the criminal defense bar, and to the dissemination of information to the public about DUI Defense Law as a specialty area of law practice. The Summer Session is an annual national gathering of many of the finest DUI/DWI/OUI defense lawyers who meet to teach, learn and exchange ideas about defending citizens accused of operating under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

This has been one of the highlights of my legal career. I was so honored to be asked by Dean Stein to participate and even more honored to serve. This was my first time addressing the entire college, and my third time acting as an instructor. I am always amazed at how much I learn at these sessions, especially while teaching, and how gratifying it is to help others. Thanks to the entire NCDD Family for the support.
